Red Eyed Wattle – Acacia cyclops


Please note: I do not post my plants / products. All prices shown on this website do not include delivery. I offer a delivery service within the Perth metro area for $15 per order. You are welcome to collect your plants / products from me in Kalamunda at no charge.

You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.


Acacia cyclops. 3.7L coir pot.

This wattle prefers a full sun position in well draining sandy or loamy soil. It can tolerate drought and salty soils.   

During the warmer months, yellow flowers will appear, attracting bees and insects.

In late spring through summer, long twisted seed pods will reveal red-ringed seeds that can be eaten. The nutty flavour of the wattle seed can be used as a coffee substitute.  

The plant should grow to around 3m high by 3m wide.
